Pharmaceutical nanotechnology is a unique interdisciplinary science that integrates the knowledge of natural sciences and engineering with Pharmacy and medicine to develop nanopharmaceuticals.

Pharmaceutical nanotechnology offers new tools, opportunities and scope, which are expected to have a great impact on many areas in disease diagnostics and therapeutics. Pharmaceutical nanotechnology is now well-established as specialized area for drug delivery, diagnostics, prognostic and treatment of diseases through its nano-engineered tools. Pharmaceutical nanotechnology provides opportunities to improve materials, medical devices and help to develop new technologies where existing and more conventional technologies may be reaching their limits. In short, recent development, market realization of various pharmaceutical nano-tools and global interest shown by scientists, governments and industries ensure that there is tremendous potential and scope of nano-based drug delivery system in near future.

Pharmaceutical nanotechnology  is a unique interdisciplinary science that integrates the knowledge of natural sciences and engineering with Pharmacy and medicine to develop nanopharmaceuticals. Pharmaceutical nanotechnology embraces applications of nanoscience to pharmacy as nanomaterials, and as devices like drug delivery, diagnostic, imaging and biosensor. Pharmaceutical nanotechnology offers new tools, opportunities and scope, which are expected to have a great impact on many areas in disease diagnostics and therapeutics. Pharmaceutical nanotechnology has emerged as a discipline having enormous potential as carrier for spatial and temporal delivery of bioactives and diagnostics and provides smart materials for tissue engineering. Pharmaceutical nanotechnology is now well-established as specialized area for drug delivery, diagnostics, prognostic and treatment of diseases through its nanoengineered tools. Few nanotechnology based products and delivery systems are already in market and many more are under clinical trials to get approval for entering to the market. Pharmaceutical nanotechnology provides opportunities to improve materials, medical devices and help to develop new technologies where existing and more conventional technologies may be reaching their limits. Pharmaceutical nanotechnology raises new hope to pharmaceutical industries by providing new cutting age patentable technologies in view of revenue loss caused due to off patent drugs. Scientific societies, industries and governments all over world are looking with great anticipation and contributing their best to clutch the potential of this technology. This technology has the potential to make significant contributions to disease detection, diagnosis, therapy, and prevention. Pharmaceutical nanotechnology could have a profound influence on disease prevention efforts because it offers innovative tools for understanding the cell as well as the differences between normal and abnormal cells. It could provide insights into the molecular basis of disease. However, going towards bottom size increases the unknown health risk. However, some suggested initiative must be taken in order to exploit the advantage of this very fascinating and ever growing potential technology. Some of these are (i) identifying, defining and characterizing model nanomaterials, (ii) developing toxicity testing protocol, (iii) detecting and monitoring exposure level, (iv) assessing the impact of environment, and (v) developing the biocompatible hybrid system. We still lack sufficient data and guidelines regarding safe use of these nanotechnology based devices and materials. There are several confounding unresolved issues, which warrant the application in its full bloom. Pharmaceutical nanotechnology is still in infancy. Some concerning issues like safety, toxicity hazards, bioethical issues, physiological and pharmaceutical challenges get to be resolved by the scientists. Meanwhile, recent development, market realization of various pharmaceutical nano-tools and global interest shown by scientists, governments and industries ensure that there is tremendous potential and scope of nano-based drug delivery system in near future.
